@justwise or any other person Please I want to find out if a tier 4 dependent can switch to tier 4 general student visa inside United Kingdom
Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 3 by mimilyrics: 1:56pm On Oct 25
You can't.

You may be able to change (switch) to a Tier 4 (General) student visa if you’re in the UK under any of the following visas or schemes:

Tier 2 (General)
Tier 2 (Intra-company transfer)
Tier 2 (Minister of religion)
Tier 4 (Child)

Hi Mimilyrics, Justwise and other gurus,

I intend to process my Tier 4 dependant visa. My problem is this: My husband said when filling his application he wrote my name attaching his own when officially I've not changed my name to effect this yet. Will this cause a problem? Bearing in mind that I'll be attaching our marriage certificate which shows my maiden name?
Thanks guys as you respond

Swear an affidavit and also do a newspaper publication of a change of name.

The cold in Scotland nawa.

Please,

1.For Students, can a statement of account serve as proof of address for NI number application.

2. For a dependant, what's the easiest proof of address to provide for NI number

3. Is this proof of address actually necessary for NI number application?

Thanks

Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 3 by mimilyrics: 1:03am On Oct 27
They need to include the cost of sponsorship and its duration.
There's a standard format for UK tier 4 sponsorship letters.
Zoey1:
Please Gurus in the house, kindly enlighten me.
School Rep here in Nigeria asked me to use this exact lines for my Sponsorship letter.
1. For me its too brief as against UKVI rules that expect amount of Scholarship to be stated or that they will take care of all bills.
2. Why must I copy this, what if somehow the ECO notes the similiraty? Or are we not submitting Sponsorship letter with Application?
Thanks

Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 3 by mimilyrics: 12:22pm On Oct 27
Pls use this format because in the UKVI guidance, they need to know for what period the scholarship/sponsorship is for. If it's not there, your application will most likely be refused.
Zoey1:
Thanks Mimilyrics, same I told her.
She said the person that used this still got her Visa but we are different and so is our application.
So I would rather use this format

mimilyrics:
Did she just conveniently become your guardian weeks or months to your application when you've obviously gone over the age limit required for guardianship or adoption? Or was this document obtained while you were within the age limit required?
The UKVI can spot a document that was generated for the sole purpose of bypassing the rules and it wouldn't be nice to get a refusal and a ban due to misrepresentation.

Thanks a lot for your response brother. I actually took few days to go through the UKVI requirements and I was able to get some solid fact. A family member can sponsor you but it must be legally backed up as your legal guardian. A British legal guardian doesn't need that huge amount of pounds to show for the embassy as proof of maintenance, the only thing that's needed is just £570 pounds for 9 months and for a period of 28 days. After reading through the whole tier 4 UKVI documents, I contacted my school in London and expressed the situation to them, I even quoted the pages for them to read on UKVI for tier 4, they agreed to reduce my living expenses from 11,385pounds to 5130 pounds in London but requested for some documents to back up my claim. Please read through page 71 to 73 of that UKVI guidelines for tier 4.

Some fantastic Reaearch there.
A stunning discovery.


Your next research should be find out EXACTLY what the UKVI men when they mention “LEGAL GUARDIAN”.

Have you cared to find out ALL the documents that you will need to proof that someone is your LEGAL guardian?

Yes, The legal guardian means an original court document with notary public and contact details of the notary public, it is not just an affidavit o. My school requested for the legal document and I have sent to them. Other details required from the legal guardians are on page 72 of 109 UKVI, subsection 293 and 294.

That is not possible. The school can not reduce the amount for you because it got nothing to do with them.

Your research wasn't factual

I will be shocked if you are given a visa with a sponsorship letter from local govt.

Original Court Documents.


Great!

Question would be, when did this person assume legality as your guardian?

I think I may be assuming too much.
But for the sake of clarity, I would ask please.

What level of education are you applying for the T4 visa for?
Is it Secondary? College, First Degree or a Masters degree?

I think you may need to clarify on that so that you can receive better advise.

Nice.

Are you going for a primary? secondary? Or University level education please.

Are you intending to fake it? Or your LGA is ACTUALLY sponsoring you?

If your LGA is ACTUALLY sponsoring you, they would do well to simply issue you a scholarship letter, transfer all the money to your personal account that’s all.
But if you intend to use a fake letter head and impersonate an LGA, the ECO would see through your lies and your visa would be denied.

You meant to say they reduced your SCHOOL FEES? Or they reduced the London Maintenance money for you?
This your school must be a special one.
